Could a diesel ZX smoke an Ariel Atom?

What if a surgeon or pianist were driving?

Never give up

Course it could. I once smoked a Japanese sports bike.

The turbo was blown though so properly smoked It out. It was using a gallon of oil a day on my commute and When I got to work oil was dripping off the back bumper. I only ran it like that for a few days though

Glad they aren't still on it! It's getting some Aura alloys that came in the boot of the red ZX

I got those alloys off eBay for a tenner! I picked them up from a lovely* bit of Bristol on the drive back from Exeter.

Some of you know that I run the local county orchard group. My beloved red ZX diesel estate that I use for commuting also lends a wheel for the orchard-related activities. Earlier this month we held a scionwood swap, where folk bring and swap cuttings from fruit trees to use for grafting new trees. As Van de Pomme was blocked in by other cars, the ZX was pressed into service to carry all the items needed.

 

It was a very chilly morning, just after we had a weekend of snow, but fortunately the doors didn't do the usual 'bounce' trick (anyone who has owned a ZX will know what I mean) so we got to the venue and back without me having to hold the door closed with a bungee cord... :-)

 

A chilly day...

My old one (1.9D Aura, I think), with Peugeot alloys and Berlingo steels.

The alloys rubbed like buggery when I carried passengers. I also now very much regret the FDMYO! yellow fogs.

I used to have a signature, but now I don't.

2 photos from a couple of days a go and one from a while ago just because I like it. Maybe not up to an Ariel Atom but it's shown a clean pair of heels to a fair few  that were least suspecting it. 3 photos of illusive 3 doors seems to make sense too.
